C180 1999 Central Locking Problem

Gave a jumpstart to a friend with flat battery - and now my central locking does not work - cannot open boot, either with electronic key or from button inside car.

Did not get key to 'manually' open car when I bought it.

Could the jumpstart have caused something to blow? A fuse? ... where is the fuse?

The indicators flash as normal when I click the electronic key - but nothing happens, so I cannot lock car from outside, or open boot.

Any info much appreciated. Thanks.

Your dealer can order a manual key usually overnight!

The manual key should be tucked into the smart key. Look for a switch lock on the back side, push it to the side and if you have one, the key should slip out. My car has 3 fuse/relay boxes but I don't know about yours. Check your owner's manual for locations or ask on the W202 forum (sedans section). Hopefully it is only a blown fuse or relay. Good luck and welcome to the forum.
